Bullfrog Films is the oldest and largest publisher of videos and films about the environment in the United States. Founded in 1973, it has been honored with a retrospective screening at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and with a special award from Medikinale International in Parma, Italy.
We define "environment" broadly and our collection includes programs on ecology, energy, agriculture, indigenous peoples, women's issues, sustainability, community regeneration, economics, social justice, conflict resolution, architecture, and the arts. In recent years, we have released many films about globalization, gender, climate change, and human rights. There are films suitable for all ages in the Bullfrog collection, produced by outstanding, prize-winning filmmakers.
To help people create community advocacy events—using the power of film to raise awareness and funds for their efforts—we created Bullfrog Communities to enhance the public performance of films providing discussion guides and publicity materials with the films.
In partnership with Icarus Films we established Docuseek, an educational streaming service, providing exclusive access to essential independent, social-issue and environmental films to academic institutions.
The company principals are partners Winifred Scherrer and John Hoskyns-Abrahall, and their son Alex Hoskyns-Abrahall. The dedicated Bullfrog team knows the films, the issues, and is eager to help people find the films they need.
